David Vann and his partner Nancy are in the UK and came for tea. Oh my how we have laughed and now I'm on tenterhooks for his next book, Caribou, out here in January. Fortunately I'd done a quick turn around on the tablecloth after the visiting Canadians, so we were fine and Devon cream tea was done and Bookhound and David did the hunting, shooting, fishing stuff while Nancy and I talked life and books.
But the rest of the shopping list...well the installation is shaping up nicely. Tomorrow is setting up day and Bookhound still has his task ahead...to make us a slate gravestone with inscription, while I go and pillage other people's gardens, not such a big ask in view of what I've had to source today.
